be popular here in the u.s. and only to date secretary clinton said a few hours ago that we should not put any red lights to iran. this is a mistake because when you deal with the enemies in the middle east, you don't play according to the rules of washington, d.c., jerusalem, or the and. it's a different language, and if you want to convince someone in iran to stop, the nuclear race, you have to take action. in my book i write it very directly that it's not an afterthought. we need to take action and we have seen that sanctions, not crippling sanctions. i think what happened the last month in the decision that our friend in canada took to close the embassy in tehran. it is a great decision. we should have done it years ago because the people in iran, look at what's happening here in two weeks time, ahmadinejad will become a contiguous. he will go to the u.n., deliver a nice speech, but then he will go back to iran and he will continue with the race to build a nuclear bomb. in my book i speak a lot about israel, but the fact -- [inaudible] because of iran would become nuclear, it i
